June and July – Behind the scenes…

I’ve been taking some time out over June and July.. and I must say I’ve enjoyed time away from the screen again immensely! It charges my creativity and I love that!

Over my break, I have been with out with the camera here and there and also doing some painting and reacquainting myself with that – an enjoyable and ongoing process 🙂

I’ve been back in the NSW countryside again for the last month as well, so I thought I’d share visually a bit of what I’ve seen over these two months. My behind the scenes..

It’s winter right now.. and we are really having our full share of very cold and stormy weather.


(You can see a few other snow pics in a previous post.)

We haven’t had an abundance of pretty sunsets… but here is one.. Feathery.

The Changing Seasons…

I have missed participating in Max’s Changing Seasons these past months and as I’m presently in the countryside, I can’t photograph ‘my tree’… sooooo… instead…

Here is the same type of tree, but in a different place!

I’ve been enjoying a few planted pots of bright, colourful Cyclamen flowers, watching them change hue in the light or lack thereof.

Still Life

..and I’ve been experimenting with different Still Life images again, watching the light.. The winter light is truly gorgeous!

and collecting more leaves 😀 I love nature!

This month, I’ve decided to do a Kim Klassen (still life) course to try a different way of doing things.. This is a work in progress, as this is not the way I see things (so far)… but.. good to try something new and learn new things too!!

A view from the top – my first effort.


I have been doing a bit of Instagramming through my break.. and I must say I’m enjoying it. There is plenty of inspiration to be found and I love connecting with you over there too! It’s funny how we WordPress people find each other wherever we are 🙂  You can find me on Instagram as @robynwashere

When there isn’t a lot of time, it’s a fun way to connect 🙂

Well I think that’s plenty from me for my first post back.. and I’ll be back again on Monday with the One Four Challenge for August.

Have a fabulous weekend wherever you are!

Robyn xx

      1. Well, we have had our share of flooding, with 6-12 hour traffic jams…

        Not good to be in such a jam, especially if you want to pee

  2. Beautiful selection of photos. I have started back on Instagram too. I have found a programme to upload from my computer – so much easier than trying to send to my phone.
